Barack Obama,  my view,  politics

He wants to do what?

Bonus post. Sorry, I just couldn’t hold my water. Smooches…

What are your feelings on the news that John McCain wants or wanted to suspend this Friday’s planned debate with Barack Obama. Is it a maverick move or is he trying to pull the wool over America’s eyes? I suspect some ‘Blinking’ is going on.

I mean shouldn’t the future president be able to walk and chew gum? The debate is an hour and a half. He can do that and go to Washington if he really has to. The debate will be a chance for the American people to actually hear his real feelings and possible solutions if he has any for this crisis. Oh and if he’s suspending his campaign is he suspending his ads? Enquiring minds want to know.

My feelings can best be summed up my this comment taken from and Mickey Edwards, Princeton lecturer and former Republican congressman:

“Oh, brother. What idiot came up with this stunt? It ranks somewhere on the stupidity scale between plain silly and numbingly desperate. McCain and Obama are both members of the senate and they’re both able to help craft a solution if they wish to do so without putting the presidential campaign on hold; after all, I’m sure congressional leaders would be willing to accept their calls if they have some important insights to impart. And while one of them will eventually become president, neither one is president yet, nor is either one a member of the congressional leadership; I’m confident that somehow the administration and the other 533 members of congress will be able to muddle through without tapping into the superior wisdom and intellect of their nominees. Sorry, john; it really sounds like you’re afraid to debate. This sounds like the sort of ploy we used to use in junior high school elections.”

Thanks Micky.

Oh and when is Sarah Palin going have some real interviews with the press? That woman can get in and out of a car super fast. What, no stops at The Today Show while you’re all over New York this week. What up with that? My bad, she just dd and interview with Katie Couric. Way to go. 5 whole minutes.
